Evasions: A Growing Threat for Government Networks
Industry tests reveal that many of the leading next generation firewalls (NGFW) due to design flaws in many of network security devices, are vulnerable to evasions, even if you use a name-brand NGFW or intrusion prevention system (IPS). Evasions allow exploits and malware (including aggressive ransomware attacks like WannaCry) leave government networks exposed.
And the stakes for such vulnerabilities are higher as federal agencies. Under President Trump's 2017 executive order for cybersecurity, agencies must focus more attention on addressing vulnerabilities.
Action must be taken to prevent security events and breaches from malware from occurring in the future.
